In the short film Eight Ball, a hit woman posing as a D.A. meets with a homeless guy - and also a possible witness to the crime that left him brain damaged. As she probes his memories to uncover whether he's even able to testify - and therefore poses a threat to the mob boss who has hired her - we learn his tragic story, and the fate that awaits them both when she makes her final decision.

Literary Prize

The screenplay was a finalist in the Pavaline Short Screenplay Competition, and the winner of the 2017 Hammond House International Literary Prize for a Screenplay. It was produced for Hammond House Publishing by Heather Buckby in 2018, directed by Curtis Hogarth. The premiere will be February 6th, at the 2019 Awards Festival.
